If there are several bottles in stock, the displayed photo is not contractual and illustrates the state of conservation of the bottle.

Note from the chateau: The cool climate of spring gives flowers that are just normal in precocity; followed by a hot, dry summer, thunderstorms at the end of August/beginning of September which brought 50 mm of rain; the noble rot develops and offers a very rich first half of the harvest. From October 9, the continuation is complicated with 100 mm and too few dry windows for the concentration, the quality will not be the same any more.

Dark fox red. Wonderfully rich, thick and creamy and finishes so clean and beautiful. If served blind you wouldn't guess the age anywhere near 85 years. Fantastic! Great with sautéed foie gras.

. Tasted well over a dozen times in different contexts through the 1970s and 1980s, almost all 5-star though colour variation noted, from lemon gold to rich warm amber, but never as dark as the "29''.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
The 1928 Château d'Yquem was generously opened at a dinner in the Far East, this bottle purchased ex-château as indicated by the back label. Deep amber in color, the bouquet has amazing precision and intensity, a smorgasbord of scents such as mandarin, dried fig, nougat and a touch of adhesive (a common trait in old Sauternes and one that I quite enjoy). The palate is beautifully balanced with a killer line of acidity, layers of candied orange peel, mandarin, orange rind and botrytis. Whilst it does not contain the sheer power and flamboyance of the sensational 1929 d'Yquem, it does offer stunning persistence in the mouth. After 88 years, this Sauternes shows absolutely no sign of diminishing and it is bound to reach its century with style. Just fabulous.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
Amber in color, the strong perfume is loaded with notes of butter, burnt caramel, smoke butterscotch, apricot jam and orange rind. The wine is surprisingly concentrated, fresh, silky long, bright, acidic and sweet, but not overly so, in the finish you find burnt toast with caramel, pineapple and candied green apples.

Château d'Yquem
Château d'Yquem

The Château d'Yquem is an area of 133 hectares including 113 hectares of vineyards, 102 acres operated, south of Bordeaux in Sauternes region that produces a sweet white wine ranked Premier Cru Superior, the only wine from the Sauternes category.

It is considered by many as the best Sauternes. The yield is only 6 hectoliters per hectare and in some years, if the quality is not deemed sufficient, the bottles are not sold under this label.

The wines are characterized by their complexity due to a significant amount of residual sugar and flavorings made by Botrytis cinerea. A relatively high acidity helps offset the sweetness. Another characteristic for which Château d'Yquem is known is his longevity. In good years does present a bottle of his outstanding after one or two decades in a cellar and with care it will keep for a century or more, adding to the complexity...

Since 1959 Chateau d'Yquem produces a dry white wine named "Y" (and before 2004 "Y Lur-Saluces") makes an equal proportion of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. This wine, like great wine is not produced every year. The 2005 vintage was the first vintage of Yquem offered for sale en primeur.
